I am a graduate of the Accredited Staging Professionals® course, an accredited home staging program, and I have been a member of RESA, the Real Estate Staging Association, since 2011. I have a Certificate in Interior Design from Bergen Community College. In addition, I am the author of a book for Consumer Reports on "How to Sell Your House, Condo, or Co-op."
I have renovated three of my own homes, including one that sold within two weeks in 2000 for full price after multiple offers, and one that rented within two weeks in 2009 during a very slow market.
Prior to raising my two grown sons, I was a writer and editor for ABC-TV and for a public relations firm, and then a freelance writer. I am a graduate of the Accredited Staging Professionals Course (November, 2009), an accredited home staging program and have served on the Board of Directors for CHADD, the non-profit organization that helps children and adults with ADD.
I grew up in Princeton, NJ, lived in New York City, then resided in Bergen County for the last 30 years until moving to Montville in Morris County in late 2013.
